The pop-up studio, located in Atlanta’s Target Edgewood Parking Lot, will feature 12 open workout classes throughout two days, and the C9 Champion Limited Edition by Anna Kaiser collection will be newly showcased in-store along with other Target wellness products for guests’ shopping convenience. Serving as Atlanta’s very first AKT experience, the event will take place on January 12th and 13th. Join me and Anna next week.

Around Atlanta: Your guide to Atlanta’s best doughnut shops

If you haven’t heard by now, it’s National Doughnut Day! In honor of this yummy holiday I’m sharing my favorite doughnut shops around the Atlanta area.

Your guide to Atlanta doughnut shops

1. Revolution Doughnuts

Located in Decatur, Revolution Doughnuts has a special place in my heart. I love getting their Rose chai tea lattes with almond milk while enjoying their Salted Caramel Doughnut. If you are planning to go on Saturday or Sunday, I recommend getting there early because they typically run out. My other favorite doughnut flavors from Revolution are the Dark Chocolate, Cinnamon Sugar and Fresh Peach. They also have gluten-free doughnuts as well. 

2. Sublime Doughnuts

Sublime Doughnuts is one of Atlanta’s most popular doughnut shops. They have two locations one in Midtown and one in Brookhaven. Sublime is known for its unique flavors and shaped doughnuts. My favorite flavors are Smores, Reese’s Peanut Cup and the Ying Yang Twist.

3. Doughnut Dollies

If you live outside the perimeter, you should check out Doughnut Dollies in Marietta. They opened in early 2016 and have been selling out ever since. My favorites are the Red Velvet, Lemon Lavender and Apple Ginger Cranberry fritter. 

4. Bonglaze Doughnuts

I just recently discovered Bonglaze doughnuts when I ordered them from UberEats. They are located in Brookhaven and are opening a location in Buckhead soon. I love the Cotton Candy, Meyer Lemon, and Campfire doughnuts. 

What are your favorite doughnut flavors?

Around Atlanta: Georgia Aquarium

Last month I had the opportunity to attend a private tour of the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. I had visited the aquarium in the past for a few meetings but never actually toured the facility. So I was excited when this opportunity came my way. The Georgia Aquarium just debuted a new sea lion and dolphin exhibit. If you live in Atlanta or are planning a trip this summer to the city I recommend you check out the aquarium. Spend the day in the area enjoying all of the towns lovely museums and the Georgia Aquarium.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Love is all around us today. I’ve seen flower and balloon carts on every corner this weekend. Although I’m not a huge fan of this holiday because I think love should be cherished everyday and gifts are such a small part of what true love really feels like. It’s great to see so many people celebrating love. 

I’m excited to share this collaboration with Free People. I usually like to keep dates simple and low key by cooking together at home or going to a concert. But I do  love getting dressed up every once in a while for date nights not just on Valentine’s  Day.  This red satin dress from Free People is sexy but comfortable for a night out on the town. 

Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite date night spots in Atlanta. 

1. Check out a show at the Historic Fox Theatre. 

2. Enjoy Friday night Jazz at The High Museum of Art.

3. Spend summer nights at Chastain Park watching a concert.

4.Take a bike ride on Atlanta’s Beltline and  enjoy a nice meal at Ponce City Market.

5. Take a cooking class at  Preserving Place

Around Atlanta: Waiting on Martha Boutique

I recently visited the Waiting on Martha  shop in Atlanta located at the  Shops Around Lenox. I had meant to stop by when I was in the area in the past but time never permitted. But I’m glad I had a chance to buy a few Christmas gifts during this trip.

Waiting on Martha Store

Owner, Mandy Frye is a fellow Atlanta lifestyle blogger who opened a brick and mortar store of her successful online boutique. She carries everything from clothing to cookbooks to stationary. When you walk into the store you feel as if you are walking into your home. I met Mandy a few years ago at a blogger event and remember hearing her talk about opening her store. In early 2016, her store is expecting to relocate to an unannounced location when her lease is up.
